Second Industrial Energy Efficiency and Environmental Improvement Project China

This project was designed to promote sustainable improvements in energy efficiency in China's industrial sector and create substantial environmental benefits. The project aimed to do this by supporting legislative and institutional reforms in energy conservation and market-based economics, while providing catalytic investments to fund efficiency and environmental improvements.  The project focused on five enterprises across three major energy-intensive industry groups: i) cement, ii) chemical, and iii) metallurgy. Geographically, the project worked across three provinces and one municipality. One enterprise was dropped from the project due to financing problems.  In terms of results, all four remaining subprojects were completed ahead of schedule and the project achieved its main objectives and was rated 'successful'.
